Jurij Krpan lectures about the artistic profile of the Kapelica Gallery in Slovenia as well as abroad. The curatorial focus of Jurij Krpan work is highlighting the production of meaning by works of art and their tactical intervention in contemporary society. From the very start the focus of the Kapelica Gallery has been on artistic production which takes as the subject of its work the sphere of science and technology. Kapelica Gallery has played host to the most important players in the world and has established a trend in the field of Art & Science through art and with works which topicalise human corporeality. Krpan’s theoretical interest is on conceptual, aesthetical and political meaning of life as an object where artists are investigating the influences of biopolitics, its tools to control human society in human-machine cohabitation and possible transgressions of obsolete humanism in human-nonhuman relationships.
